    Just saved myself from the biggest mistake of my life. Got rid of a major expense of both time and money. Showed up at my (now former) girlfriend's house to pick her up for trivia night. Walked in on her and her apparently not-so-ex-boyfriend. Walked out, called and cancelled the order for the ring I was having made. Kind of a shitty day, but I figure the good things are that I've got nor money for the vacation/toy fund, and that I found out before I tied the knot.

    Kilvinsky I think, therefore I'll never be promoted.

    Better now than later.

    Holy shit.

    Though shitty, better you find this out now, than after you dropped all kinds of dough on a ring.

    On the bright side, this now means you get to go crush some strange!

    Scribs' #2 graduates from the Academy in a mere few weeks, and Scribs #3 got his card and is beginning the process. It's nice to see him motivated again, after getting boned by the military, he was a little down. He's actually listened to his older brothers and has started working out hard to be ready if/when he gets the call.

    I can't agree with the others enough. If she doesn't appreciate you, she doesn't deserve you. You're much better off moving on and finding someone who does.

    Wow! You actually caught them in the act?!? It seems like you were able to keep yourself in check and not do anything stupid. Good self control!

    Channel that rage into motivation to go out and have some fun. Just don't mix sorrow with alcohol if you're feeling particularly down. Go on a cruise and meet some women on your ship. Cruise ships are like Vegas at sea and women tend to use them for girls trips, but not many guys do the same. So the odds of making a friend are in your favor. You can find solo cruiser specials so you don't have to pay for two people just to have your own cabin on Vacationstogo.com. Or bring a buddy and share a cabin and work out a deal if one of you need privacy.

    I really think you dodged a bullet. I had the opportunity to get hitched a couple times and although it was difficult letting two great women go on with their lives without me, because they wanted to get married, I think I made the best decision for myself at the time. Unless you absolutely have your heart set on having the traditional family life with kids, marriage is usually a very bad deal for men. Especially when things go wrong. In fact, it can be one of the worst financial decisions you can make in your life unless it is something you absolutely want.

    Good luck.

    Didn't make it inside the house. There's a big bay window in the living room, and the lights had silhouetted them..... (Think that scene from Old School where Will Farrell comes home and sees his wife in the BJ class)
    As far as not doing anything stupid, I'd rather not flush any hope of working in LE down the drain with a DV charge.
    Ended up just changing plans to beers and some cigars with a buddy last night.

    I'd prefer pinker, but thanks. Waiting for the beginning of August to come around. Thinking a week or so in LV should work wonders.

    Just found out our squad is going to recieve a unit citation for our work in 2014. The unit had a closure rate over 90% in 2014 (we caught over 100)!!! Thanks for all the hard work and dedication guys, you truly are "The Greatest Detectives in the World!!!" The world and the city are better because of the work that you do. I am so proud to be associated with such a dedicated group of men and women. Stay safe and carry on.

    That was yesterday.


    On the anniversary of my daughter's passing, a family member of a victim brought me a basket filled with cookies, snacks and what not. Small things that make me feel there is still a good reason to love my job regardless of how hard that may be sometimes.

    There are no sadder anniversaries than the loss of a child. I visit my sister's grave fairly frequently. I was 14 when she was born pre-maturely and lived only 2 weeks. I never got to meet her, but it still had a hell of an impact on me and of course on my parents. I can somewhat feel the pain you're feeling. God Bless.

    I have a pulse, I haven't been fired and I can still remember things, like how to type. So, what site is this again?

    Had a great night the other night watching some friends from the 84th play ball at the not so evil empire's Yankee stadium. Didn't get arrested, sent to he hospital, and managed to work the next day with nothing more than a minor headache. Now I'm just hoping that "what happens in New York stays in New York."
